Top 5 Items for Your Kitchen Safety Kit

Kitchen fires damage properties and put lives at risk. Plus, they're one of the leading causes of house fires, according to the National Fire Protection Association

Hence, preventing different types of fire is the best course of action. Having a fire safety kit at home lets you do this. 

This post features the top five items for your kitchen safety kit. 

Five Must-Have Items for Your Kitchen Safety Kit

  1. Fire Spray
  2. Fire Blanket
  3. Fire Protection Gloves
  4. Smoke Mask
  5. Fire Sprinkler

Here are the items you must have to keep your kitchen safe from fire:

1. Fire Spray


A fire spray is the most crucial item in a fire safety kit. Unlike a fire extinguisher, a fire spray is easy to carry, eco-friendly, non-toxic, and easy to clean up.

Here's a table showing the differences between the Hero Fire Spray and a regular fire extinguisher:

Hero Fire Spray Regular Fire Extinguisher
Lightweight, easy to carry Heavy, hard to carry
Easy to store Needs more space for storage
Can put out all common fires at home Can only put out specific types of fire
100% biodegradable Mostly non-biodegradable materials
Non-toxic Toxic
Easy to clean Hard to clean
 Safe for kids and pets Not safe for kids and pets


2. Fire Blanket

A fire blanket is a simple yet effective tool that smothers fire. It's handy for grease fires in the kitchen, which can't be extinguished by water. 

Prepared Hero's Emergency Fire Blanket is a fast-acting, easy-to-use blanket that puts out a fire in seconds. Plus, it never expires, so you can use it as much as you want. 

Simply pull the quick-release tabs and toss the blanket over the fire to prevent it from turning into a big, hot mess. 

3. Fire Protection Gloves

Many households use oven mitts to try putting out small fires. However, oven mitts only protect you from heat, not flames. 

This is where fire protection gloves come in handy. Prepared Hero's Fire Protection Gloves can resist extreme heat (up to 1,472°F). You can even hold hot coals using them. They also withstand a sharp knife without you feeling a thing. 

Here's a table showing the differences between Prepared Hero's Fire Protection Gloves and oven mitts: 

Prepared Hero’s Fire Protection Gloves Regular Oven Mitts
Fire-resistant Not fire-resistant
Resistant to sharp knives Not resistant to sharp knives
Made of aramid fiber Made of cheap plastic or rubber
Lightweight & breathable Not breathable
Machine-washable Tears in washer
Put out fire Catch fire
 Protect you from burns Don’t protect you from burns


4. Smoke Mask

Smoke irritates your eyes, throat, nose, and lungs. As a result, you wheeze, cough, or experience breathing difficulties.

The Hero Smoke Mask protects you from smoke, poisonous gas, and radiant heat. It lets you breathe for 60 minutes, so you can leave your house safely. Plus, its reflective smoke hood design protects your face and head from extreme heat.

5. Fire Sprinklers

A fire sprinkler system dramatically decreases heat, flames, and smoke. When properly installed and maintained, it can save lives. It also automatically activates after a kitchen fire occurs and makes fire damage cleanup easier.
